There's an old Chinese saying 天高皇帝遠 (The sky is high up & the Emperor is far away), meaning if u stay away from the centers of political power, ur relatively free from State control. Yet the modern State is so intrusive there's almost no escape even if u hide into the woods.
The State was a recent development in the long stream of human history, but nowadays most people can't imagine life without the State. Many people, especially those on the Left, even believe in expanding State power for more bureaucratic social programs.
As an #anarchist, I believe in community self-governance. Instead of letting career politicians high up there dictate how we're supposed to live, ideally we ought to take the power back into our hands. That, of course, will require drastic reorganization of human society.
